Soldier Field Makes A Place For New Moms
Soldier Field has made a a lot of changes this year from their new food menus, to now making a special place for new moms.
Just because a woman had a baby and is nursing doesn't mean she can't go to a Bears game. Or if she does, she'll have to hang out in a tiny bathroom stall that's not very private or clean to nurse or pump.
Soldier Field is making sure all nursing Moms have a special place that's "safe, private and clean environment" to take care of this.
ABC7 shares that "a new lactation suite" courtesy of Advocate Health Care, teamed up with the Bears "to provide a Mamava suite for Mama Bears."
The pod will be open for Monday night's home opener.
Here's a look at the new lactation suite.
The idea for the stadium to need this suites came about after seeing how they were used "at the 2018 Super Bowl where moms had the availability to nurse during the big game in a Mamava suite."
Now all Mama Bears can go to games with now worries of where or how they can nurse their child or pump.
